A few years ago, Shanade and her husband decided that their backyard was getting a little out of hand. Because their yard is fairly large, simplifying was definitely at the top of their list. With some pre-planning and the help of a landscaping company, they transplanted a few shrubs to make room for their new ideas.
After removing lots of small trees and shrubs and laying grass, they really cleaned up that back corner! I generally take sides with the “get rid of the grass” mindset but I think that the addition really works here. The couple has 4 kids so the extra space paired with less maintenance on a garden is huge. I especially love that pretty tree-lined fence- the purple flowers are gorgeous! Anyway, what do you guys think? How are your spring cleanups progressing? –erin
